Splash du Jour: Tuesday

When you become comfortable with uncertainty, infinite possibilities open up in your life. It means fear is no longer a dominant factor in what you do and no longer prevents you from taking action to initiate change. The Roman philosopher Tacitus rightly observed that “the desire for safety stands against every great and noble enterprise.” If uncertainty is unacceptable to you, it turns into fear. If it is perfectly acceptable, it turns into increased aliveness, alertness, and creativity.
-- Eckhart Tolle, in A New Earth. p.274 --

Have a great Tuesday!

That is an excellent quote, one I would do well to implement in my life! I am a person far too comfortable with my habits and familiarities.

You and me both, Jeane!
I too, am a person that loves the comfortability and unchangeableness.
I end up missing out on many adventures.....
